Primary cultures of woodchuck hepatocytes were demonstrated to be susceptible to in vitro infection by both woodchuck hepatitis virus and ground squirrel hepatitis virus, as evidenced by the appearance of DNA species characteristic of hepadnavirus replication. Initiation of infection by woodchuck hepatitis virus was blocked by the presence of suramin… CONTINUE READING
